Transforming a bunker to a residential complex


Concrete demolition with hydraulic excavators and KEMROC milling attachments: A former high-rise bunker is being transformed into a residential complex.

In the German city of Koblenz, a high-rise World War II bunker is given a new lease of life. The mighty building made of solid concrete is to be transformed into a high-quality residential complex. To start this transformation, contractor HR Abbruch had to make some structural changes to the building. Milling technology from the manufacturer KEMROC played a key role in the initial phases of this project. A large excavator with milling attachment completed demolition work with low noise and low vibration levels while in close proximity to neighbouring residential buildings.
